10 millionaires were made tonight. That is how lotteries are supposed to be. Question is, will Powerball keep churning out multiple millionaires and how far up will the jackpot go, now that MM has been won? Hurray!

    Ten people from nine different states, won $1M or more. Maybe we can finally put to rest, this issue of some states being favored by the lottery, or the notion that some states are favored to win on purposed, by the lottery guys rigging the game. If things keep going this way, we might see a $500M+ jackpot, in a few weeks.

      Megamillions was finally won so more people played Powerball tonight. If you look at previous players winning there was an increase of almost 150,000 winners. A winner of the jackpot should occur within this next week and I do hope it rises at least two more times to make it so much better if the jackpot is split by two people. I will buy a ticket if it rolls over once more, the all cash option is still under $170M.

            I got 3 powerballs with powerplay, which paid me $24.00 because of the 2x multiplier. Boy, I hate 2x multiplier because it sucks. Multipliers should start from 3x upwards to possibly 10x. Did I tell you 2X multiplier sucks?. Yes it does.

                  That was a big surprise after seeing the 15/16 drawn. I wonder if those winners would of played if the MM wasn't hit.

                      Since I play for the 2nd place jackpot and rarely pay MM, I will go crazy and buy 2 PB tickets next time!

                          Ten people from nine different states, won $1M or more. Maybe we can finally put to rest, this issue of some states being favored by the lottery, or the notion that some states are favored to win on purposed, by the lottery guys rigging the game. If things keep going this way, we might see a $500M+ jackpot, in a few weeks.

                          Putting that issue to rest would be nice but many of those complaints are just various ways of saying, "Someone won the jackpot and it wasn't ME!"

                          Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

                          Lep

                          There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

                            I hope powerball doesn't change the matrix. It's got the best odds to win $1M at that cost other than when Cash 5 games rolls over a few times.

                              I hope powerball doesn't change the matrix. It's got the best odds to win $1M at that cost other than when Cash 5 games rolls over a few times.

                              Hoping isn't going change a thing.  I think both multi-state games are interested in pushing the envelope of what players will put up with before they stop playing.  Once that point is reached, they will step back and redesign the game to something similar to what they had just before reaching that point.

                              That's what happen in Ohio with their  $2 Lot'O Play game with a 6/100 matrix.  After a year they came out with Classic Lotto(6/49) for $1.
